Alright track. the guitars get a little lost in the mix everytime the vocals kick in during the first half of the song. strong finish tho

i always think there's a really good writer behind this band, they move into and out of their melodic sections so easily, much more subtle than most metalcore groups

this song ain't exactly overshadowing The Trees are Dead in my mind though

Fucking amazing. Seriously... can these guys do no wrong? The new singer compliments Mikee nicely. I didn't know what to make of him when I saw them on tour but he's done a great job contributing to this song.

Why in the fuck did they lose Justin Hill? He was like the most distinctive part of the whole band. New guy's alright I guess. He needs to get buried more in the mix.

New guy is ok, but he ain't no Hill that's for sure.

Overall, the song is perfectly fine but it's weak compared to everything that came before it including the recent EP. I do like the machine-like drums and bass in the intro and outro though.

Justin Hill stepped out because he wanted to focus on his production career more and felt he couldn't allocate the time to the band anymore

I have to get used to joe rosser but I'm liking this

This band is at their best when they use melody as a counterpoint to a mainly dissonant and heavy base. This song is like opposite that and it just doesn't do much for me. Riffs towards the end are cool though

Instrumentally kind of lacking and the vocals feel mixed in pretty haphazardly. That aside it's a decent song

Great, just when I found a distinctive vocalist, he is replaced. Don't hear much difference though, probably because there is also Mikee. Song is great. Opacities ruled and I hope this will do, too. Towards the end it's really good.

I'm really enjoying how this song doesn't let up. Yeah, Sikth are really good at blending melody with dissonance but this song is just a snapshot of the album. To me it just reinforces how strong of a band these guys are and how energetic this album is going to be. They don't seem to run out of steam.

The lyrics video doesn't help the song at all. Something like "waiting for rain, waiting for rainfall" looks completely ridiculous when it's underlined the way it is, with an aggressive font that follows the pronounciation of the words and raindrops.

wow i couldnt make it past the first minute and fifteen seconds. new singer is doing everything in his power to sound exactly like their old one, and does a decent job at that (but he shouldnt even be bothering ffs) but the best part of their old singer was his lyrics and this guy is like the epitome of terrible bland metal lyrics.

It seems like lyric videos are solely utilized by metal bands with terrible lyrics. It's like my dudes, I'd u didn't make a video with them we wouldn't be able to understand half of what u are saying anyway and that's probably for the best.

it is because these are the kinds of people who are verbally confident in their writing skills, something not many great writers boast about. you can practically hear the singer rattling lines off to the largely uninterested band who just wants him to finish his take.

lyrics are bound to be especially bad when it is this kind of lyrics video too, AE compositing messes of flashy transitions and ridiculous filters.

OH NO! The new vocalist is terrible. The song itself doesn't get good until the end. This kills all momentum they had headed out of opacities. It really bums me out too because that EP was amazing.

@Wayfarer1991 so... one song turns you off from a band that has consistently put out solid material? Seems a little extreme man.

@nonapplicable he does have a couple awkward moments on this song but I think he's doing a good job keeping up. Justin and Mikee played off each other so naturally but we'll see what the rest of the album holds. I do agree, Opacities was amazing.

@beyondcosby

Pardon the hyperbole. Obviously I will give the full record a spin, but this song does not bode well at all. I should have mentioned that I also found their previous EP very mediocre. Anyway, I ought to be more careful how I phrase my comments.
